Unlike the previous iF Design award-winning Avalue models, the RiPac-10P1 is a POS terminal equipped with the former Atom Z3735F. In addition to Android (8.x) and Windows 10, the RiVar-1501 also supports Ubuntu Linux. The RiPac-10P1 was the first dual-display POS terminal to combine a 5-inch touchscreen for customers on one side and a 10.1-inch retail display on the other.

In the same way, the RiVar-1501 offers a second optional touch screen for retailers. Two 15.6-inch HD touch screens are mounted on a higher table stand. By comparison: The RiPac-10P1 has a flat triangular bracket, similar to the 4.3-inch Android-based Poynt Smart Terminal.

The 15.6-inch screen(s) offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a brightness of 300 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 700:1 and a viewing angle of 89 degrees. The capacitive touch screen of the projector and the 14 mm thick front panel are protected against water and dust up to IP65, the back of the device is IP41. The entire terminal can therefore be cleaned with a clean cloth moistened with 70% alcohol to prevent the spread of viruses.

The plastic table stand provides space for additional cables and a compartment for an additional Seiko thermal printer CAPD347D-E, which accommodates 58/80 mm paper rolls. The customer’s touch screen can be rotated left and right and tilted up and down while the additional screen of the retailer is tilted up and down. The screen can be placed in book or landscape format.

The RiVar-1501 supports up to 8GB DDR3L 1600MT via a single slot and offers an SD slot and a 32GB mSATA module via the M.2 B-Key 2242 slot. There is also an M.2 dongle slot that supports dual-band WiFi.

The terminal has a GbE port and 6 USB 3.0 ports: 2x at the bottom of the touch screen and 4x on the table stand. You also have two COM ports with a maximum output power of 5V/12V 1A, two 2-watt speakers controlled by the Realtek ALC892 audio codec and an RJ-11 24V port for an additional cash register.

Other options include a camera, NFC/RFID, magnetic stripe reader (MSR) and a micro-USB power connection. The screen also mentions an additional fingerprint reader.

The RiVar-1501 is equipped with an AT/ATX power supply with a lockable DC connector and can withstand temperatures ranging from 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F). Wall mounting is also possible. The entire system, including the 431 x 390 x 253 mm standard and the second display, weighs 10 kg.
